As much as we're looking forward to hearing what current and former presidents, major CEOs and acclaimed journalists have to say this graduation season, let's be honest: The celebrity commencement speeches are the ones everyone will be talking about.

Consider that last year actress Jane Lynch talked about porn and "Newsroom" writer Aaron Sorkin told grads, "You are dumb." And at Princeton, Steve Carrell championed the character-building of humiliation and rejection.

Elsewhere Andy Samberg's speech at Harvard's Class Day was pretty legendary, giving Will Ferrell's amazing speech at the Ivy League school's 2003 event a run for its money.

So the question is simply, which of the folks below is going to come out with the line that gets everybody talking?
